How to Freeze Chicken in Bulk

 

Food Storage: Bulk Chicken Freezing Tip

Buy at Amazon

I love buying in bulk, it is easier, cheaper, and lets me focus on more important things than weekly shopping lists.

The people at Zaycon help me with this, because I have not found a better source for bulk chicken.

However, the chicken comes fresh and packed in four 10 pound bags in a large 40 pound box which means when you bring it home you have to process it for storage.

Zaycon has gone out of business.

I now get my bulk chicken from a restaurant supply store in Nashville.

I have had good results canning chicken, but knowing how to freeze chicken in bulk fits our lifestyle better.

We divide the bulk chicken into family sized portions, and freeze 1.5 or 2 breasts in a ziplock bag is a perfect amount for most of our weeknight go-to recipes.

This video shows a tip to help with bulk chicken freezing.  This is a pretty neat tip, and I have used for all manner of things besides chicken.

It works because the weight of the air above us has a weight of about 14 pounds.  This presses on the water.  The weight of the water, and the atmosphere on the water, compresses the water against the sides of the plastic bag, forcing extra air out of the bag to give a good vacuum seal.
